James "Jim" Scott Obituary

James “Jim” William Scott of Steelville, passed away Sunday, March 10, 2024 at Phelps Health in Rolla at the age of 81 years, 9 months and 8 days. He was born June 2, 1942 in Steelville, Missouri to Elmer D. Scott and Genevieve Watson Scott. Jim was a Steelville High School graduate from the class of 1960.

Jim was united in marriage to Sandra Nelson on December 18, 1977 in Fairfield, California and to this union two more sons joined his family of two which became a brand-new family.

He served honorably in the United States Air Force from 1960 to 1966. Soon afterwards, Jim became employed by the Federal Government at Travis Air Force Base in the Civil Service until his retirement in 1995. On a cold and snowy day in Missouri, Jim moved back to Steelville in 1995 bringing Sandra to his home town.
